SPOKANE, Wash. - Compassionate Addiction Treatment in downtown Spokane is a behavioral health agency running several outpatient programs and as of two weeks ago, they're offering medication-assisted treatment to the homeless suffering from substance abuse.
M.A.T. works through suboxone strips and is absorbed orally, helping to cut back withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
Compassionate Addiction Treatment Co-Executive Director, Trudy Frantz, says they are accepting walk-in appointments and the only requirement to receive this treatment is that clients have opioid use disorder and a desire to get better.
An open house is planned on November 4 for city officials, downtown businesses and anyone in the public eager to learn about their services and facilities.
